101 in 1001

I'm the type of person that believes in the concept of a bucket list. And having dreams and plans for the future. My husband calls me "silly" sometimes because I talk about crossing things off my bucket list, but I think it's important to do things that make each day better and brighter. Otherwise, life can become monotonous if you're not out there exploring all there is to offer. :) When I first heard of making a 101 in 1001 list, it was a few years ago, and I don't know if I ever finished it. I've been seeing them on people's blogs, and I decided I wanted to make my own again. I know many people will do this after the start of the new year, but I wanted to start now. I mean, why wait, right?

 Here's to dreaming, enjoying each moment, and always reaching higher!
